Erm my baby is around 1month + now , i have some problems with the formula that i am giving her , i gave her Nan pro 1 . I only give formula in the night ~ She always cannot finish the whole 120 ml only like 80 ml the most but while in the day she can drink up to 130 ml ,does that mean that the formula doesn't suit her ? & also she have problem passing motion after drinking formula .. Should i change her formula ? Anyway she only start to drink very little formula recently ..
Another problem i am having is that the teats , because i bring home the teat that hospital gave . It is nuk's teat + those glass bottle , i uses it at home till now because easily to warm up ebm , I bought avent 's one . I used both type but when she is drinking with the nuk , she can drink really fast & easier but when using avent's one she drink really slow , i tried to change the teat for avent's one ( 0month to 1 month) but still the same . Does that mean that she doesn't suit the avent's one ?
Hope can get some help here
to see if a FM suits your baby anot, not by hw much she drinks. is whether she will get diarrhoea, constipation etc..
as for the teats, i do heard before some babies not 'used to' certain teats... my friend's baby, at 1st they gave him NUK, he cannot suck well, then change to avent, then to pigeon then change back to avent again... if your baby can suck well on NUK teats, then mayb stick to that? =)
When you say that she drinks up to 130ml in the day is it FM or EBM?
If you notice that after introducing FM that her poo pattern has changed, it could highly be due to the introduction of FM. Though my pediatrician did mention that NAN series of milk is less likely to cause constipation.
My boy was on NAN Pro 1 before. I find that the smell and taste is very different from EBM. Could that be the reason why your dear daughter rejects the EBM? Have you tried feeding EBM at night instead of FM? Does she also take 130ml of EBM?
Did you only recently introduce the Avent bottle to your daughter? If so, she might prefer the NUK teats because they are softer than the Avent ones. I tried many bottles with my son. In the end he likes the Avent one so we stuck to it.
During the first few weeks she was drinking ebm all the time till 3rd week then we give her formula in the night as need to get enough rest .. Her poo pattern changed a lil , become watery & also she always "gek sai" till very tiring like this .. Even in her sleep . if i am not wrong she poo around 4 times a day .. Oh yes sometimes i get a lil green colour poo what does that mean , is it fine ?
She can finish up 130ml ebm , but 80 ml at most for formula . Erm do you know any formula that is less smell or less taste .. I will try feeding her ebm tonight to see whether she can finish her milk or not I think of putting less milk powder because the smell is really strong compared to ebm but i scare she never get enough nutrients ..
I will try to use other brands , or maybe i stop using nuk teats to let her get familar with avent's one ..
If she likes the NUK teat why do you want to get her familiar with Avent one?
If the poo is dark green, it is fine. FM tends to cause dark green poo because of the high iron content and vegetable fat content. Only if the poo is bright green, then it is not ok.
It could also be she is more full on the FM that's why she take less than EBM. You can go to different milk websites to get samples to try. Like Similac, Friso or Mamil Gold.
For me, my boy is taking NAN HA because he is allergic to other brands of milk. HA means hypoallergenic. It is slightly more bitter than the other milk.
Maybe you go to this site below to see what her poo looks like. If it's the very watery kind, then you better bring her to see doc.
